Kaleidoscope Easter


Spring is in the air and Easter is around the corner. This card is vibrant and delicate in appearance. The bright colors in combination with the parchment paper are a great pair.

Start with a white card base of 5 1/2 x 7 1/2. Layer a piece of mint card stock that measures 5 3/8 x 7 3/8. I used a 5 x 7 piece of kaleidoscope paper that is part of the Razzle Dazzle Paper Pack from Michaels. I embossed the paper with Swiss Dots by Cricut. I attached a piece of pink ribbon to the center and attached to the back. Layer the kaleidoscope paper onto the mint card stock.

For the center of the card, I used the Labels 49 die by Spellbinders. I cut the largest die in yellow card stock, the second largest die in white and a frame with the same 2 dies in mint card stock. Stamp Happy Easter with black Staz On the white label. The Happy Easter sentiment is from the Happy Spring stamp set by Rubber Cafe.

For the flowers, I stamped the Flowering Dogwood flowers by Heartfelt Creations onto parchment paper using Victorian Velvet Distress Ink by Ranger. I stamped two sets of leaves. One is on regular white card stock with Forest Moss Distress Ink and the other with Cracked Pistacio Distress Ink on parchment paper. The stamens are die cut out of parchment paper and moss card stock.

To shape the flowers, I used a bone folder to curl the petals and then used the Flower Shaping Tool by Heartfelt Creations to push down the center of the flower. I added two stamens to the center of each flower. I combined 1 moss card stock stamen with 1 parchment stamen.

To assemble the card, layer the white label onto the yellow label. Use pop dots to layer the frame on top of the yellow label. I used craft foam on the back of the label to give dimension to the center of the card.

To decorate the label, I attached 2 of the Dogwood Flowers to the left corner and 1 to the top right corner. I embellished with both types of the leaves, Arianna Lace pieces, a pink bow and pink pearls.

During this season, I hope you are generous with your talents.
